This is the third book of an excellent series which has a slightly Lemony Snicket feel to it - not anywhere near as silly, though. Flavia is a smart, plucky English girl living an impoverished life with her father and sisters in the manor house of a country village. In this story she gets involved with a Gypsy grandma who had been accused and cleared, years ago, of stealing a village child. Now the grandma has been beat up and her teenage grandchild appears on the scene. Meanwhile mysterious events occur in and around the manor. A fun, fast, satisfying read.

Flavia de Luce returns in her third mystery, investigating a long-ago missing child, the brutal attack on a gypsy fortune-teller, and a murdered local thug. Flavia continues to use her chemistry knowledge and sleuthing skills to discover the truth behind all of the mysteries presented. What I especially like about this book is that you get more of the inner story of Flavia. What you discover is a young girl who who misses and grieves for her mother, is hurt by her sister’s hatred towards her, and really needs a young friend (besides Dugger). I loved this book and can't wait to pick star reading the next one in the series. A definite 5 out of 5.
